You may wonder why I'm vacuuming my shirt...

Because Tallinn is going through his bi-annual shed.
Sometimes we even vacuum him, but today we used the brush that he so clearly dislikes. My carpet is going to be extra fibery for a little while until his coat thins down.
Just a while ago blogger Trudie From Life After AC wrote a post about dog fur socks. Where the pups sheddings are spun into yarn and then knit into a socks. She had socks made from such doggy yarn. Here is my attempt at dog socks, minus the knitting and spinning skills.

If the socks don't work you could always use it as a Santa beard!

You need a furminator. It is the best pet brush on the face of the planet!

There is a lady in BC who will spin your dog's wool for you and then you really could have Tallin socks. I think Bonnie mentions the address on her blog.

Oh.my.god. That is a lot of fur. I am such a psycho about fur/hair/lint on my dark clothes, this picture is giving me an anxiety attack. But he sure is a cute puppy...
